Your passport is extremely valuable, but also incredibly easy to lose or damage. Keep it safe with a travel wallet such as Minix.

The minimalist design of the wallet means it is thin in your pocket, and canvas construction makes for great durability. There is also space for a few credit cards, too.

RFID protection means your contactless cards are protected from fraudsters, and there is also a slot for spare SIM cards.

If you are at home and going about your business without your passport, you can fold the wallet over for an even smaller footprint. It becomes a stylish card holder that can also protect your cash.

There are so many travel wallets out there it can be hard to choose one right for you. With the Minix, it is hard to go wrong.

The design is nice and simple but the materials are top quality. If you want a no-frills travel wallet that should last for many trips to come, it’s a great option.

Following a successful Kickstarter campaign, the Minix will retail for $20. It will ship in March 2019. Check out the campaign page for more information.

San Juan Better Than Ever After Hurricane Maria

It’s been almost three years since Category 5 Hurricane Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico, wreaking havoc on the island and leaving most residents without electricity and clean water. Tourism, which accounts for 6.5 percent of Puerto Rico’s gross domestic product, took a beating, with hotels closed for year-long repairs, airlines cutting service and cruise lines shifting itineraries to other Caribbean destinations. Timing for the hurricane couldn’t have been worse, coming on the heels of the government’s announcement in May 2017 that it was unable to pay more than $70 billion in public debt and thus forced to file for bankruptcy. Large protests and a change of government would follow. Then, in January 2020, a 6.4-magnitude earthquake rocked the south side of the island, forcing San Juan restaurants to close while power was restored. And as we write this story, coronavirus runs rampant across the globe with severe economic implications for all destinations, including Puerto Rico.

Mix Work and Play in Bangkok

The 1985 song “One Night in Bangkok” mentions many of the overindulgences of this city. One of them is massage parlors. Today, however, a Thai massage is considered an activity that improves one’s physical and mental well-being. The city has shed its former reputation as a place of wild nightlife and decadence, over the past few decades emerging as a major center for international commerce, wellness initiatives and tourism.
